I recently explored this magical seeds and I just love them! Chia seeds are full of antioxidants and protein. They are perfect for a breakfast or a snack. You can combine them a variety of flavours, different types of milk and fruits. It is a perfect healthy snack that provides you the right nutrition such as amino acids, omega-3 (18g per 100g), calcium, potassium, and fiber. It contains a lot of protein too. 100g of chia seeds contain around 14g of protein! It is a perfect snack after your workout or as a kick-up start for the day.
Let me introduce this simple recipe.
1 cup of chia seeds
a hint of stevia (optional)
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon for flavour
optional – coconut milk, almond milk
Soak a cup of chia seeds in a water or coconut, almond milk (or any other milk you wish), add stevia or cinnamon for more flavour, mix it up (or shake it, if you place them in a jar with lid) and leave it for a couple of hours in a fridge. The ration is usually 3 tablespoons of chia seeds per 1 cup of a water or milk to create a chia gel.
Once the chia seeds create a gel, just place it in a bowl, add blueberries, banana, and dried cranberries along with some coconut flakes.
Enjoy a healthy breakfast! 🙂
